Katherine Kavanaugh

Katherine Kavanaugh received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota in Duluth, traveled for nearly three years, built a house, got married and moved to Louisiana. While there she received a Master of Liberal Arts degree and mentored with the artist Clyde Connell. After moving to the Washington, DC area she completed a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Maryland College Park.
